This command allows you to connect to any container in the current fabric and execute a command. For example, to execute the osgi:list command on the root2 container, you could enter a console command like Example 10.1, “Executing a Command in a Remote Container”.

Example 10.1. Executing a Command in a Remote Container

JBossA-MQ:karaf@root> fabric:container-connect -u YourName -p YourPass root2 osgi:list
This command uses fabric JAAS security to log into the container, so the username and password are managed by the container's JAAS realm.
